Complex and nuanced listen

Think it's great. Worth a listen for government leaders, nonprofit professionals and private sector folks as well.

Excited and Encouraging

It was so refreshing to hear pragmatic, smart mayors and city leaders talking about the actions they are actually taking to address racial inequities. There is a lot of great work happening that I didn't know about.
